Finding Healthy Golden Retrievers For Sale
Adding a dog to your family is an exciting time for everyone. If the dog you would like to add to your family is a Golden Retriever, you will not be alone looking for a good Golden. The Golden Retriever is a very popular dog, and for good reason, these are one of the finest dogs you can own. The Golden Retriever is a beautiful dog with a gentle soul, they are loyal, loving, good with kids, and although they were bred as gun dogs, they can do many different jobs.
If you are looking for Golden Retrievers for sale there are many things to take into consideration before you purchase your next best friend. You do not want to jump in and purchase the first beautiful face you see; you want to make sure you have a quality puppy from a quality breeder.
The first thing you need to decide is if you want a Golden Retriever that is bred from hunting stock, or show stock. There is a difference, show dogs have been bred with the most exacting coat and body structure in mind. Hunting dogs will have been bred from the individuals that are the most durable, best swimmers, and show the knack for hunting.
The next thing to consider when looking for golden retrievers for sale is the fact that there are going to be many to look at, Golden’s are bred by many people all around the country. Some breeder’s do a fine job of breeding, but unfortunately some do not, you want to avoid these breeders at all cost. Anyone can have Golden Retrievers for sale and advertise them in the paper or a magazine, but this does not mean they are a good breeder. The best way to look for Golden Retrievers for sale is to create a list of breeders by checking the internet, magazines, newspapers, and other media outlets.
Once you have a list of breeders, it is actually a reasonably easy process to weed out the undesirable breeders. If the breeder is a member of the AKC, you can call the club and get a recommendation from them. You can contact the BBB and check for complaints against the breeder. You can contact their local dog warden and get information about the breeder, and there are websites that rate dog breeders. This should narrow your search quite a bit; you should now have a short list of breeders that have good ratings. Now you will want to call those breeders personally.
Your personal interviews will seal the deal as to which you will use, listen to the breeder closely, you can learn a lot by listening. Breeders fall into two groups, one that is a breeder for money, and the other that loves his Golden Retrievers and breeds them with the intent to better the breed. There is nothing wrong with breeding for money but if possible, purchase your Golden from the second type of breeder.
You may pay a little more for your Golden Retriever but the breeder will guarantee the dog, have all papers, have all veterinarian papers, and will gladly show you the parents of your puppy. This may not sound like a big deal, but if a breeder is hesitant to show you the parents of your puppy there could be a problem. As soon as you arrive at the breeders’ facility you will learn a lot, a good breeder will encourage you to come to their facility and it will be clean, spacious, and full of happy beautiful Golden Retrievers.
